SPEAKERS

Jarrod is a civil engineer who is passionate about working collaboratively to deliver great outcomes. He is the Coordinator of the Transport Unit at the City of Greater Geelong, where he has helped plan and deliver Geelong’s plan for cycling corridors, some of which are separated from motor traffic. He has also worked on the Central Geelong Action Plan where he was responsible for the planning and implementation of a range of transport, place making, public realm and economic stimulation projects.

Daniel Bennett is a landscape architect who recently went full time as director of his own business DJB_LA, leaving his position as the Associate Director for Strategy and Design for the City of Adelaide. During his time at the City of Adelaide he created the Adelaide Design Manual, the Smart Move Transport Stratgy, the Green City Plan and Park Lands Management Strategy. He also oversaw the design of the controversial Frome Street bikeway, which he’ll be talking about today.
